The next-gen console release of The Elder Scrolls Online just took an arrow to the knee.

ZeniMax Online Studios has officially announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online are going to both be hit with significant delays. The console versions of the ESO were both supposed to launch in June, but ZeniMax openly admits that this is no longer going to happen. ZeniMax Online Studios concluded that it will need roughly six more months in order to effectively bring the ESO over to PS4 and Xbox One. This means that we will not be seeing Tamriel on next-gen platforms until late Q4 2014.

In consolation, anyone who buys and plays the PC version of the MMORPG by the end of June will have the chance to move their characters to the PS4 or Xbox One version of the game once they are released. On top of this, PC players will be able to buy the complete digital version of The Elder Scrolls Online for either Xbox One or PS4, transfer their characters and gain another 30 days of game time for the cheap price of $20. Stay tuned as we will provide up-to-date coverage on the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online once more information is released.
